Thinking of going the voip route, most likely with Vonage. Currently have a Netgear wireless-g router that has served me well. Any thoughts on the best way to set this up? Will have two PCs, Xbox and the laptop hooked up.
Vonage has a few devices you can select from. The easiest one is the simple phone adapter. Phone plugs into adapter, adapter plugs into router.
I have a Linksys router w/ VoIP phone ports from them. I assigned it to a different subnet from my regular network (the VoIP box is on 192.168.2.x, the regular network is on 192.168.1.x), turned off all the router functions and plugged the WAN port of the VoIP router into my main router.
The digital display on top of that adapter will just confuse you. Hit up target and pick this up for $50. Plug it in and call Canada all you want. No configuration, no excess plugs, it's just a tiny box you plug into your existing router.
